Specific language impairment may be associated with other disabilities such as intellectual disability or difficulties in relating to and communicating with others. There may also be specific problems contributing to the disorder such as difficulty in recalling language, or inability to respond appropriately within the social context. The focus of this chapter is specific language impairment as the primary problem. The definitions and causes of specific language impairment as well as the ways of classifying and measuring it are expounded. Besides, numerous issues in deaf education and some curriculum considerations for those suffering from hearing impairment are illuminated, accompanied by the discussion regarding the general classroom principles for supporting students with specific language impairment.
